Organizing your research
Below you will find several videos and links to help you find articles for your assignments and research.

In addition to combining terms in the search box to limit your searches, you can select from the limiters that are listed on the left side of the search screen. For this assignment, it would be helpful to limit your search to full-text and resource types: Articles and newspaper articles.
